So would anyone that had just been wronged by a criminal. That's why we have a judge and jury give out punishments, and not the victim or vigilantes.
I see your 100 billion and raise you 500 000 000 000
one new (1994) dinar was equal to 10^27 old (socialist yugoslavia) dinar, four years later. I guess a country disintegrating war and embargo will do that.
Why can't someone borderline insane be for the sterilization of the insane? Keep in mind that he had no partner or children, by choice... or barring that, that it's pretty common for people with an odd outlook to think of themselves as normal or proper.
Parts of Canada kept sterilizing mental deficients through the 70's, he would have been proud.
in much of central europe and the balkans, red lights turn amber before they turn green. (or red -> red & amber -> green). Not sure if further east does this too.
Like they want people drag race, I guess. I don't think they really have problems though...
Piezos have a very narrow resonant frequency, so if you try to make a broadband white noise it's very inefficient (and I presume would mostly still be audible only at the resonant frequency).
Cheaper than speakers and easy to drive, so... like everything else I guess... 'good enough'.
FWIW the walk lights here are mostly high pitch, but more than a few feet away I only hear a sort of metronome clicking, as the high part gets lost in traffic. So they must have some low component as well. (or i'm half deaf up high, maybe...)
PoE, the standards complying versions at least, 802.3af (IIRC), do run at 48V. As it is about the highest you can go with shit insulation and not be required to meet real safety standards, while at the same time battling I2R losses with get brutal on long runs with low voltages.
I agree though, unless a room only has one 20W lamp, CAT5 isn't the way to be powering it...
If we want to save copper, we should do what we do now. Wire houses with 220V, and switch down at the load.
But we are also permanently on DST, as it's more like 11 when the clock reads noon.
No way you slice it, days are too short in winter, too long in the summer. shifting one way or the other makes no difference. In winter it's dark when you get up and dark when you go home.
I like Geany quite a lot, I use it on windows and linux.
It has plugins like notepad++; whether there are as many available I'm not sure.
"tabulating machines". they did very simple computations. punched card based.
Have you even seen the last few releases?! I've used firefox since the beginning, and the last while has been a steady decline into a chrome clone.
I'd change browsers if there was something to change to... Everyone seems to want UX designer wetdream minimalism, fuck functionality.
Instead of having firefox which wants to be chrome, or running chrome directly... I can now run a wrapper around chrome!
Liberal by Alberta standards, I guess. You guys even have one MP that isn't a conservative!
Yeah, because destroying backwaters half way around the world is a surefire way to make the US 'free'.
Just as in WW2, they had laws illegalizing looking for radio transmissions by saying that it's illegal to capture transmissions NOT MEANT for you. And other such hamfisted means. They would have made Dick Cheney proud.
Whereas the US just cut the shortwave coils out of German immigrant's radios. The american broadcasts were ridiculously scripted as well.
A lot of stuff 'flew' during the war that people wouldn't normally stand for, like say, internment of 'enemies', food & fuel rations, etc.
Polio isn't one of them. Polio is/was getting close. Smallpox is gone except at the CDC and a Russian equivalent that doubles as a bioweapons facility; gone in the wild.
#2 is rinderpest, a disease that used to plague cattle and various other 4 legged things like buffalo.
